Smartpool - The first decentralized mining pool based on smart contract (alpha)
The client is currently tested only on Mac OS and Ubuntu.
Golang compiler version 1.7 or higher.
Ethereum Parity client version 1.5.9 or higher.
Ethereum Geth client needs to be compiled from source.
We support CPU and GPU mining with ethminer version 1.2.9 or higher. Current versions do not do CPU mining so an older version is necessary to CPU mine on testnet.
Note: To get Ether from metamask faucet, you need to install metamask browser add-on.
git clone https://github.com/SmartPool/smartpool-client.git
Note: If you are on MacOS, there is a issue with Go and XCode 8.3 that might make you see
killed ./smartpool error. To fix this issue, please run
build/env.sh go build -o smartpool -ldflags -s cmd/ropsten/ropsten.go instead of ./compile.sh.
- Run Geth on Ropsten testnet:
geth --testnet --fast --rpc --rpcapi "db,eth,net,web3,miner"or Parity:
parity --chain ropsten --jsonrpc-apis "web3,eth,net,parity,traces,rpc,parity_set"
- Run smartpool client
./smartpool --keystore keystore_path --miner account. Where
keystore_pathis a path to a directory that contains your account key. E.g.,
accountis the address of your account. E.g.,
./smartpool --keystore ~/Library/Ethereum/testnet/keystore --miner 0xe034afdcc2ba0441ff215ee9ba0da3e86450108d.
- Enter your key passphrase.
ethminer -F localhost:1633or
ethminer -G -F localhost:1633if you mine with your GPU.
